(singular is pronounced fak-TEECE)
DEFINITION: "Fake!" But to be more precise, a factice
is a bottle made for the purpose of display, not for sale. It
is considered to be a "dummy" instead of the real
thing. Factices come in a variety of sizes from small to giant.
Most collectors prefer the giant size. Factices don't have real
perfume or cologne in them (with a few exceptions); usually
they are filled with a solution made to resemble the real perfume.
An alcohol or formaldehyde mixture is usually used. The glass
itself may be of the same quality as the bottles filled with
perfumes but the contents are not. Factices are advertising
They make a grand statement displayed on your vanity or anywhere
that you want to add a touch of GLAM.
